Cambridge One is a platform for Teachers and Learners of English as a Second Language (ESL) to access resources and activities published by Cambridge University Press.
It allows all the ESL content to be found in one easy to access place and provides data and feedback on progression for both Teachers and Learners alike
Parents and School Administrators can also use the integrated learning management system to monitor learners and give them the tools they need.
The team working on Cambridge One is located globally in 5 key locations across the globe so we are used to effective remote collaboration. Our projects are agile and often harness Scrum and Kanban.
When not collaborating in a cross-functional team, I sit within the Global Service Design Team, specialising in User Experience Design and Usabililty testing. The user is at the forefront of our decision-making. We always look for ways to improve their experience regarless of their location or age.
Being a educational tool our design priciples were based on simplicity, accessibility and responsivity within the constraints of a business that is new to digital.
Following SAFe methodologies our multicultural team would travel to Cambridge for a intensive week of project planning and other team building activities every quarter.
The team regularly travelled to conduct contextual inquiries into the use of the product such as the use of classroom presentation software on an interactive whiteboard.
"The digital transformation of a long-standing company such as Cambridge University Press is not an easy task"
"Clear asynchronous communication is vital to the success of a multicultural team distributed across different timezones"
